Lab Testing – Vo2 & Lactate

Vo2 Testing

Lab testing Vo2ERunning through aligned sports science services providers, provide a range of Vo2 Testing procedures for runners looking to find and reach their potential.

Fitness can be measured by the volume of oxygen you can consume while exercising at your maximum capacity. VO2max is the maximum amount of oxygen in millilitres, one can use in one minute per kilogram of body weight. These testing facilities are available to athletes in Geelong, Melbourne and Victoria. We also have the capacity to offer this service in all major areas through contact and consultation with other sports science providers.

Vo2 Testing in a lab, is quite definitive and provides accuracy above all others from a controlled environment, which is its significant advantage over field testing. There are a range of lab based options available so please contact ERunning for details.

Lactate Testing
